Gamla Stan – guide to The Old Town
Publish date: 17 December 2020
Gamla Stan is like a living, pedestrian-friendly museum, filled with sights, restaurants, cafés, bars, and places to shop for souvenirs. The narrow, winding cobblestone streets, with their buildings in different colors, give Gamla Stan its unique character.
Västerlånggatan and Österlånggatan are the district’s main streets, but head off the beaten track to get the true feel of the island. There are several beautiful museums and attractions here, for example, the Royal Palace.
Lately, Gamla Stan has become a virtual gastro-island, with quite a few excellent and award-winning restaurants to chose from.
